Jourdan Resources (TSXV:JOR) has begun a soil sampling program on its claims in the Preissac-La Corne lithium mining district north of Val d’Or, Quebec.

The Toronto-based company said the program is being conducted on a 400m by 200m regional grid and represents a precursor to a potential drilling program.

The soil sampling program is intended to find new lithium anomalies and showings in areas of known lithium mineralization at Baillarge, Preissac-La Corne, Duval Lithium in La Motte and Vallee Lithium, which are the company’s properties.

 “We are not only committed to establishing an initial mineral resource at Vallée, our flagship property, but we are focussed on the further exploration at our Baillargé and Preissac-LaCorne properties,” Dr. Andreas Rompel, executive chairman of Jourdan, said in a press release.

Samples are being collected from the b-horizon, at a depth ranging from 10 cm to 90 cm, while roughly 1,000 sites are expected to be sampled.

The completed diamond drilling program of 3,629 meters was meant to follow up on results of a 40-ton bulk sample previously collected in 2018. The fence line was drilled in 2011 and a follow-up drilling in 2021 was done along the western side of Jourdan’s Vallee property.

Since February of this year, 18 holes of roughly 200m of depth have been drilled with each aimed at the pegmatite swarm identified by the trenching from the 2018 bulk sampling.

Moving forward, the company said it expects to be able to begin a geological mapping and prospecting program to run in tandem with the soil sampling program.

Shares of Jourdan Resources are up 13.33 per cent to C$0.085 as of 12:56 p.m. EDT on Monday.
